This melodrama full of passion, deceit, revenge and love, is set in the 16th century in the city of Màntua (Italy). Based on a work by Victor Hugo and censored before it opened for its criticism of the monarchy of the day, this three-act opera with music by Giuseppe Verdi is the international debut of Javier Camarena and Antonino Siragusa in the role of Duc de Màntua at the Liceu. Carlos Álvarez, Àngel Òdena and Leo Nucci complete the cast of this upscaled Rigoletto at the Coliseu of Barcelona.The production by Monique Wagemakers is minimalist but at the same time highly complex from a technical viewpoint. The red Venetian Renaissance costumes recreate the intense, emotional spectrum of Rigoletto.
